Manage Wildfire AND Conduct Rx Burns AT THE SAME TIME!

Over the last decade, on the San Carlos Apache Reservation in SE Arizona, land and fire managers have been increasing their already active management practices to include a robust prescribed fire program.  In 2014, while managing multiple prescribed fires on their 1.8 million acre landscape, the lightning-caused Skunk Fire broke out.  This presented a unique opportunity to manage a large fire for the benefit of the landscape AT THE SAME TIME as several prescribed fires - all with the trust and support of their agencies and nearby communities.  Watch this short video for details about this fabulous demonstration of creating resilient landscapes, fire adapted communities and a safe & effective wildfire response. This is truly a great example of Building a Culture of Fire.
